How did the OED’s coverage of these words compare with other dictionaries? What was the relationship between the OED and other dictionaries specializing in words from outside Britain? 17 In a way, this strand of the book is a by-product of the study as a whole: through my analysis of the OED, I was able to explore different methodological approaches to dictionary research. Areas explored include: dictionary case study sampling techniques; limits and problems of analyzing dictionaries with multiple editors and publication dates that span across decades; and pitfalls of relying too heavily on the lexicographers’ own accounts of their lexicographic practices, or on one type of evidence in dictionary research at the expense of others (archival, textual, statistical, and contextual).

Froude, was also read for OED1 and provided quotations for general vocabulary such as masthead and with an eye to.
